I was Wondering if anyone can help me with the fllowing  changes on tma2.

wanted to change the site's Font to Arial or Courier New .
- The Teasers Headline is big I want to make them 12px Bold.
- Also the Header of the full story is too big I want it 14 or 16px max, Bold Also.
- the subtitle of the full story is also big i want to to be 12px bold
- The channel story fonts are also big I want them the size of the adsense ads which i think is 12px.

I have tried to fool around with some of the css files on /themes/tma but no luck so far !

Thanks.

If I help you to make your own changes

Hi,

Instead of me developing the css for you, I think it's more efficient if I help you to make your own changes. Then you can make any further changes yourself.

Firstly, I'd suggest you use the browser Firefox with the Firebug extension. This is really helpful for isolating what styles are affecting particular elements (and from which CSS file).

You probably also want to disable Optimize CSS files: at .../admin/settings/performance so you can see which file is which.

Then, I'd suggest you download, install, and use the example subtheme from Making your own customisations to the default theme. Don't make any changes to files in tma or tma2 yourself because those will be overwritten when you upgrade.

Use tma_custom and you can modify it any way you like.

Next, use Firebug and right-click to 'inspect element' on something you want to change. Firebug will show you which css styles (and from which files) are affecting that element. Copy the css styles in tma_custom.css, and then change just the bits you need.

If you refresh your page, Firebug should show that your newly-edited style should now be overriding the previous styles from tma or tma2.

Good luck!

More on Fonts and Typeface

Hi Beng,

So is it in fact possible to change the font styles of the story text as well as the headlines? We're looking around for a technical person to help us use Prosepoint as effectively as possible. Will a knowledgeable person be able to customize the design a bit with fonts and typefaces? Can you give me an idea of what styles are possible?

Thanks for being patient with me.

Mary

Themeing is very flexible and customisable

Hi Mary,

ProsePoint themeing is very flexible and customisable (so much that sometimes it's a bit complex because of too much flexibility). Any part of the presentation can be changed, including fonts of any textual elements. However, in most cases it will require code changes to the theme. It's just not feasible to present an infinite set of options as settings which can be changed by the user.

If you're are prepared to pay for some customisation work, please email me privately to discuss further. (I sent you an email a week or so back, so I think you have my private email address?)
